    So, I just tried some HOK paint and thinned it with some ru311 HOK reducer. Ummmmmmm, I think I just had an orgasam !!!!!!!! Good lord that stuff sprayed like silk. Tip dry...what’s that, not a single trace of tip dry ...ever. OMG, I love this stuff.

    However, IT AINT CHEAP.

    Now, to find a place where I could maybe get smaller amounts. 4 oz bottles are just too big and cost tons. And, I can’t imagine you could do skin tones etc with it? Time to do some research .

    And yes I know it’s toxic stuff. I have a full size spray booth at work I could use if need be or do a small fan/ filter at home in the garage for tiny stuff.

    And it cleaned so easy with just a few drops of lacquer thinner...wooohoooooo

    Coast Airbrush do a whole line of HOK I believe. I’m pretty sure they do smaller bottles for airbrushing.
    I had my first go with Solvents recently and agree with everything you’ve said. If it wasn’t such a pain to deal with the toxic side of things I’d be tempted to switch entirely LOL.

    Hey Joe you can also use PPG , SEM and any other urethane , But HOK colors just pop a lot more.

    So how does that work.. you use just the paint and reducer with no activators?

    That’s right for the Inspire Solvents that I’ve used and I believe it’s the same for HOK. The paint doesn’t need a separate activator. So it’s paint, reducer and you’re good to go.
